Competitive recreational jogging

posted by Jason Kottke   Apr 09, 2010

Even when jogging for fun, many male runners won’t let themselves be passed.

When I asked a male friend what he feels like when he’s passed, he said, “I don’t get passed.” Then he admitted that the reason he’s gotten in such good shape recently is so he won’t get passed. Another friend says that if he hears someone on his heels, he sprints. And if he passes someone, he also has to sprint, to keep from getting passed back.
